Description Asad Mehmood 2016-09-28 10:27:27 UTC
When trying to open a file with C-O, kate crashes with

(kate:2612): Gdk-WARNING **: gdkwindow-x11.c:5555 drawable is not a native X11 window
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Current workaround is to start kate with:
GDK_BACKEND=x11 kate

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. press C-O with a wayland session

running gnome-shell (wayland) with Xwayland on arch linux.

We use the native dialogs via QFileDialog, if that keeps to be an issue, please report that upstream to Qt.
